Judicial Clerkships

A judicial clerkship is one of the most valuable experiences a Campbell Law School graduate can pursue following graduation. Judicial clerks have the benefit of an on-the-job education that also serves as a stepping-stone into the legal market. It can be a significant asset to your legal career, regardless of which specialty or position you pursue. Moreover, a judicial clerkship is a valuable life experience in itself—one that offers a unique opportunity to look behind the scenes of a courtroom into the practical workings of a judge's chambers. Below is a list of resources for students who intend to apply for a judicial clerkship.
